I've always been heavily built. Back in my 20s I trained like a nut job and weighed 92kg at 1.83m tall, giving me a BMI that categorized me as over weight. I always laughed. It was not the case.
Life changes and I no longer train like I used to. My weight went up to 110kg recently and since January I'm now back down to 102kg, which is great.
I've actually done this all once before, up at 110kg, then down to 99kg. That was three years ago and the weight came back on, so it's how to keep it off that I need help with.
Both times success has come through reducing intake to between 1500 and 1800 calories per day. What I need to know is this:
- How realistic is it to get down to below 90kg given that even when I was training five times a week for two hours a time and I was in my 20s I was heavier than this?
- Does your base metabolic rate require less calories the less you weigh? I'm managing to limit intake to 1500 but it's really hard and I never feel satisfied after meals. I'm hoping it gets easier!
Thanks for your thoughts.
